Army Life in a Black Regiment


Published May 20, 2008


LibriVox recording of Army Life in a Black Regiment, by Thomas Wentworth Higginson. Read by FNH.

These pages record some of the adventures of the First South Carolina Volunteers, the first slave regiment mustered into the service of the United States during the late civil war. It was, indeed, the first colored regiment of any kind so mustered, except a portion of the troops raised by Major-General Butler at New Orleans. These scarcely belonged to the same class, however, being recruited from the free colored population of that city, a comparatively self-reliant and educated race. (From the text)
